THK NORFOLK NEWS. FRIDAY , OCTOBER 10 1002 , 15 a A DOCTOR'S STORY [ Original. ] r On my list of trained nurses was Mercedes Marcel , a young woman ot the Spanish type. Miss Marcel had ravishing black eyes , a wealth of hair of the same hue and a supple flgure. She had great Influence over the pa tients she nursed , often lifting them over their low points solely by her magnetic Influence. For this reason I recommended her whenever she was disengaged. I sent for her to attend n Mrs. Brier- ly , nnd as usual she gave great satis faction. The patient , however , did not seem to gain after having reached a certain point. Indeed she seemed to retrograde. Several times It occurred to me to ask , as is my custom with my patients , how she liked her nurse , but as Ml.ss Marcel was always In- the room with her when I called nnd ns I had heard the nurse's praises so of ten sounded by others U did not occur V to me to send her out In order to innko the Inquiry.
